(Newser) – Stories about President Trump's first 100 days in office are inescapable this week, and Vocativ is out with an interesting take: a detailed look at his first 444 tweets. It's probably no surprise that @WhiteHouse is the account mentioned most often, but in second place is @newyorktimes (usually preceded by "failing"), followed by @foxandfriends. The people mentioned most often? Hillary Clinton and former President Obama are tied at eight. Trump loves his all-caps, and the phrase that most often gets that treatment, by a mile, is FAKE NEWS. He did that 19 times. However, he has tweeted about "jobs" most often, with 32 mentions. Dig into more particulars here, or check out other 100-day coverage:

  • NPR lists the 28 laws Trump has signed, a figure the White House boasts is more than any president since Truman. But NPR notes that several are of the mundane variety, including one recommending that people fly the US flag on National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Five others cover personnel matters.
  • Time sees Trump's three biggest accomplishments as the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, the withdrawal of the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the reversal of various Obama-era regulations and policies, including Trump's decision to greenlight the Keystone oil pipeline.
  • The Boston Globe has a detailed look at how Trump has done on the promises he made during the campaign. For example, the Gorsuch pick and the Keystone move are in the "done" category, his pledge to propose an amendment mandating congressional term limits is in the "not done" pack, and his promise to suspend immigration from "terror-prone" nations falls into the "it's complicated" pile.
  • PolitiFact has a similar guide, noting that Trump fulfilled a promise to place a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying for foreign governments. He gets a "compromise" rating on a similar promise to ban former White House and congressional officials from lobbying the government for five years.
  • Trump has an approval rating of 44%, per a CNN poll, putting him last among presidents at the 100-day mark since modern polling began with Eisenhower. Obama, for instance, was at 62% and George W. Bush at 63%, reports Fox News. The latter's poll has Trump's approval rating at 45%.
  • The Simpsons weighed in on the first 100 days, and Trump will not be amused.
